President Muhammadu Buhari has again met with the Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, Mela Kyari, behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday.
President Buhari had earlier on January 8, met with Kyari, who did not give comment on the outcome of the meeting.
According to reports that the agenda of Thursday’s meeting was unknown as at the time of filing this report.
The January 8 meeting came amidst the escalating tension between the United States and Iran following the killing of an Iranian commander last week and the subsequent retaliatory attacks on military bases housing American troops in Iraq.
The US-Iran crisis had caused an increase in oil prices beyond the 2020 budget benchmark.
